? As in, if you could only have one, which would you want? If so, a pump 12guage with a short barrel and a long barre.

I have my handguns but want to buy a shotgun so I was thinking about selling my Springfield 40 cal to buy a remington 870 express. But am torn. Love my Springfield.

Everybody needs at least one shotgun

Look for a decent used shotty at the pawn shops. DO NOT trade for it.

+1

and you 'generally' don't need to worry about the condition of the barrel in a used shotgun.

But i would look for a used one from your local classifieds. Seems like the pawn shops want almost as much for a new one as a used one where I have seen them for sale.

Everybody needs at least one shotgun. 25 shots for $6 and you can literally take down any animal in North America with a slug. A Rem 870/Mossberg 500 would be my top two choices if I could have just one. Either with a 28" smooth barrel and a 22" rifled barrel and you are set.

A pistol wouldn't even come into my consideration if I could have just one. I live in Illinois and hunt deer with a shotgun. I see what they can do up close and out to 150-200 yards. A 385 grain sabot that is fired at 1850 fps hits a deer like a freight train.

agree on the DO NOT TRADE statement. there are plenty of good shotguns out there for under $200 used if you look around on the auction sites. my local walmart has maverick 88's for around $200 new. aftermarket accessories probably won't support many of those used shotguns in that price range but i did manage to pick up my mossberg 500A for about $120 used a few months ago.

in my opinion, every gun person should have a handgun, a .22 rifle, centerfire rifle, & shotgun.
